Reactor Design
Algorithm for Isothermal Reactors
Algorithm
1.
General mole balance equation
2.
Design equations: Batch, CSTR,
PFR, PBR
3.
Rate Law
–
r
A
= f(X).
If given
combine and integrate to
evaluate the reactor volume, or
processing time. END
4.
Rate Law
–
r
A
= f(X).
If not given
,
look in the literature or go to the
lab. Find
–
r
A
= f(C
A
. C
B
…).
5.
Use stoichiometry to express
concentration as a function of
conversion. Combine,
–
r
A
= f(X).
6.
Combine and integrate. END
